    It depends on whether there was a correlation between salary and work.

    If I was told that for my current job I could pick any salary I desired, I'd pick the highesnt amount I thought available without bankrupting the company.
    Hehe, I like that.

    In reality I will though...everyone's situation and everyone's work ethic is different. You can't apply statistics to people. That's why your average lol. I can't get my head around how much you guys lack ambition.

    I don't. I'm ****ting myself over trying to not be another average guy you can pass.

    Your uncle? Middle classes and connections again. Another lucky and RIGHTFULLY confident soul. Have fun, good luck Flipping connections man... No. Respect you m the superior. Respect the winners. Never fight them... Wow at that last bit though. That's basically not far from what we/my parents get, and only about 10-25% of that is left on disposable income. **** man, I knew I was poor despite being in the ninth percentile of earners for household income. Eh it's evident in how little I do. Money man...

    No...I could make that much without him.
    Stop whining that people use connections go out and make your own connections that's what most my friends that want to go in to banking are doing. They're not complaining about it, they're going out to get it.
    If you want it work for it and you'll get it. No ones gonna hand it to you on a plate. Your clearly in the mindset of people being handed the jobs. That's bull****. You want it put the work in.

    In the end, brains aren't valued. Brains with a money-making capability are valued. Money is valued over intelligence in many ways.

    In my school they basically are, or have assistance. Even for dentistry. In fact, it very much is the case for dentistry. There's this one guy, and his London chain of dental practices... Lol, sorry for that. Just my prevailing experience. I wasn't having a go at you, somebody I don't know at all. Sorry my friend...

    Ah, **** off. I tried that. I played video games for years. I cycled around London. I walk and go about visiting London for free like a loner. I do nothing, and I'm an egotistical, Anarcho-Capitalist ****, who associates with 'bad' people, and holds views that would severely detriment/would not complement me in reality. I'm not mental, I'm sane, and I'm not going to a doctor (in case my supposed mental deficiencies are picked up by an employer/it harms my prospects). What is life if there is no change. And I need change. I haven't even gone anywhere yet. Literally, no family holiday in 5 years now. Never on a plane. Nothing to DO in my free time. And I'm not dull/just sitting here idly by either. I'm feeding myself an awareness of the world as I age and wither and waste yet more of my years, and all of my youth, in a ****ed up scenario I'm not expressing here. I can be so much more, is all I'll say.

    If you tell people to **** off when they're trying to help you, you won't get very far at all. There are things you can do in your spare time that are more active and stimulating. You can join any sort of club or society. Sitting pondering your future isn't very healthy or fun if you do it all the time. Also people who have depression etc are not "mental". It's not some clear cut thing where you are either completly detatched from reality or completely mentally healthy. If you're this worked up, I would ask for help now before you get worse

    Then yes, we are in the top bracket, and yes: I don't think we have enough disposable income to be able to afford what I would perceive the 'top 10% gross salary earning households' to possess.
    Aren't you a massive saver? Or did that change when you got the house?

    Your in the same school as them though...you said your on a bursary. Take advantage of your opportunity and don't mess it up. You've had the same opportunity as everyone in that school. Your too worried, exactly how I used to be. Just work you're hardest and enjoy life. That in itself will guarantee you happiness

    I still put a large chunk into Pension AVCs and a regularly index fund investment, but the majority of disposable income goes towards mortgage overpayments to bring it from a 25year term to ~10years by current levels.

    For me Qualifying as a Radiographer starting Salary is £21,500, this then ranges through promotions up until consultant level of around £65,000

    I realistically think anything over the national average (£26,000 or around that figure) is fine and you can sustain a comfortable life

    Speak with his dad, arrange work experience with him if you can. Do productive things. Just knowing him will not secure you a job in IB lol. If thats the case stop worrying just do your thing.

    ANY DECENT JOB WITH DECENT PROSPECTS FOR PROMOTION WHERE I CAN CONTINUE TO DO TAEKWONDO, LEARN LANGUAGES AND PLAY GUITAR AND NOT SACRIFICE MY LIFESTYLE TO THE MACHINE I.E OVERTIME OCCASIONALLY, NO WORK ON WEEKEND.

    IDEALLY PUBLIC SECTOR (NOT TEACHING) WHERE 20k+ SEEMS LIKELY. MAYBE GET ON A GRAD SCHEME (lol)

    BOARD AT HOME (LIVE IN LONDON) TILL I HAVE ENOUGH FOR A DEPOSIT TO BUY A HOUSE JUST OUTSIDE LONDON

    WHY IS THIS IN CAPS LOCK?? I know this is all highly unlikely, but shouting makes me hopeful

    Environmental Science/Environmental Health/Safety earns between 22-24k.
    If I get into an oil and gas company or energy that goes up to about 27-29k. I know BP grad scheme is 33k (doubt that will happen though).

    And realistically the max I would earn after years of experience and promotions would be 40-45k. Oil and Gas industry of course will be more.

    As you know, thats why you don't feel it, you're depriving youself of spare cash by saving far more than is typical. You could be buying Gucci handbags instead each month.

    Someone not in the upper decile doesn't have the luxury of AVCs and reducing their mortgage term by 70% and then contributing to an investment fund.

    What you're doing is right IMHO, but it doesn't mean you're not rich.

    I believe Reue earns massively more than you do, or indeed, will do for a good number of years.

    Having high self confidence doesn't change the realities.
